Austin Butler has transformed into the late superstar Elvis Presley for the Baz Luhrmann biopic about the King of Rock and Roll.
The movie traces the rise of Elvis from his childhood to his position as an international superstar, and looks at the darker sides of his life including drug and alcohol problems and his complicated relationship with his manager, Colonel Tom Parker, played by.
